Hi! I originally posted this question on the Windows Server Backup forum but they told me to post this question on the SBS forum...
I'm trying to restore some files from a backup to a computer running SBS2011 (ie. Windows Server 2008 R2). When I use the Recovery Wizard launched from the Windows Server Backup mmc, I am able to find the backup on the USB hard drive, select the server, the backup date, and recovery type (set to files and folders). However, the application stalls on the 'Select Items to Recover' screen. It shows the server name under available items but nothing populates and the cursor indicates that it is busy. After ten minutes, a popup appears saying:
"The open instance of Recovery Wizard was inactive for more than ten minutes. The wizard was automatically cancelled to allow other backup or recovery tasks to proceed."
After saying ok to this notice, another popup appears with a title of "Windows Server Backup" appears saying Please Wait followed by a status bar that keeps refreshing itself. However, nothing happens and the program has to be stopped forcibly.
I thought it might be that the backup I made wasn't good but I made another one to test and the same problem occurs. There are no events showing up in the logs.
Has anyone encountered this problem before? Thanks!
